MAC Patent Polish Lip Pencils: Innocent + Spontaneous

My lip crayon/pencil addiction is still going strong and these MAC Patent Polish Lip Pencils ($24 CAD/each) are the latest additions to my growing collection.


Like most beauty bloggers I'm a sucker for packaging and, for some reason, I find these pencils absolutely adorable. It's probably a combination of their chubbiness and the unconventional rounded tips (most lip pencils I'm used to seeing have pointed tips which double as lip liners). The ends feature a colour swatch, which is very useful, and they are also twist-ups which means not having to deal with sharpening.

Spontaneous is described as a "soft plum with pearl" and Innocent as a "nude beige." The former is a very wearable pink but unfortunately the latter is too light for me (kind of gives me a corpse-like look... a.k.a. not good).


Both feel comfortable on the lips thanks to a blend of creamy emollients and the formula isn't sticky. However, I wouldn't reach for these lip pencils if you want a really good hit of colour - in my opinion, they are best viewed more as tinted lip balms/glosses.

  11. The pink looks really nice and I agree with the other being too pale. I haven't read your blog in awhile but it's definitely grown since. Also, I'm pretty sure I saw you at Steveston taking outfit photos last summer but thought it'd be weird if I approached you haha.
